I Am Toto

Hello, friends!  I'm up at the Paper Bakery Kits today with 
a sweet (if I do say-so myself) layout that I put together using one of the photos from my 
daughter’s last dance recital; as the title implies, she was TOTO :)   Yes, Dorothy’s Toto
 I started out with a light aqua cardstock and went to fun-town with all of the bright colors and textures
 found in the February Paper Bakery Scrapbook Kit!  After drawing out my circle with a template, 
I attached strips of the yellow dot washi tape to mimic rays of sunshine.  
And what better paper to use for a rainbow than the multi-colored striped paper by My Mind’s Eye.
 I used some green letter stickers from my stash to complete the title and layered it with the paper doily, colorful die-cut and flair buttons.  I love the added texture AND hint of sparkle brought by the sequins
 (yep, they’re in the kit too!)  I just attached them to the die-cut with brads.
 The white alpha stickers by Jillibean Soup made the perfect little sub-title around the sun. 
 I used my brand new dies by My Favorite Things (mftstamps.com) to whip up some clouds from the patterned paper.  With the three pieces of flair, I created a visual triangle that helps to frame my photo and make it the focal point.  I was hooked on flair, as they’re all over my creations this month :)
